There are thousands of destinations to travel to in the world to get away from it all, but the intrigue and uniqueness of the African safari tops them all.
Africa Unveiled offers luxury experiential travel in the following countries:
On a typical day on safari, the breaking of the dawn is interrupted by the sounds of the bush awaking. From the myriad of bird and animal calls to the sounds of the camp hand as he quietly whistles his way to your tent accompanied by a tray of tea, coffee and biscuits to start your day. His broad smile and cheery “good morning” sets the tone for the day. Before you know it, you are part of the unfolding of the dawn as the sunlight creeps through the bush and over the escarpment. Your day has begun not by a glance at the clock, but by sunrise, sitting on an open 4X4 vehicle with your game ranger who has years of firsthand knowledge of the birds, animals, indigenous people, to the flora and fauna that make up this beautiful land.
Many of the camps are tented with a thatched main building which overlooks a river or waterhole. Game activities are concentrated around early morning and late afternoon and into the evening when the animals are most active. During the heat of the day they search for cool spots under a canopy of trees to rest.
The afternoon game drives include a rest stop to witness some of the most stunning sunsets which bring out the natural perfume of the wild herbs or potato bush, enhanced all the more by sipping on your favorite beverage. The night closes as one is beckoned by the drumbeat calling you to dinner. Sumptuous meals, wine, lanterns in the trees and the warm crackle of the camp fire along with the excitement of the day become the ingredients for a peaceful night sleep.
Africa, and its captivating kaleidoscope of unmeasured beauty of culture, wildlife, food and scenery leave’s one awe struck. For this reason alone I am drawn back time and time again.
